Arsène Wenger last night accused Chelsea of hypocrisy after questioning the logic of Roman Abramovich's lavish £76.5m outlay on Fernando Torres and David Luiz despite the Russian owner claiming to support Uefa's policy of financial fair play.
"Chelsea supported Uefa's financial fair-play proposals but in the morning they announced a £70m loss and in the afternoon they buy £75m worth of players. Where's the logic in that?" Wenger said after Arsenal's 2-1 defeat of Everton. "It's hard to guess. Officially they vote for financial fair play but they can explain why they have done this much better than I can."
